WINEMAKING  2016 was one of the finest vintages in Clare. Despite dry conditions early in the season, Yields were still slightly above average producing outstanding quality wines.  Sangiovese grapes were gently harvested and fermented for 10 days in open fermenters.  At temperatures ranging from 24 to 28c. Pressed between 0-2 Baume and according to taste. Aged in French and American hogsheads and barriques for up to 2 years.

COLOUR   Brick red with roseate gleam

AROMA   Light strawberry conserve with toasty shortbread oak aromas.

PALATE    Savoury elegance upfront with spicy mulberry and fresh strawberry flavours. Hints of cinnamon provide complexity to the persistent finish.  

FOOD PAIRING  This Italian-originating variety craves Italian and full flavoured game meats, tomato ragu, veal scaloppine and cheeses.
